    I like it. I'm new, so I can't tell you exactly why. I like the tone and the colors. Cool shot. :thumbup:

    It looks a little underexposed. I would also like to see more of what is locked, be it a door or gate. Maybe move the chain and lock to one side (rule of thirds). Just a thought. Overall I like it. I like rusty stuff.

    I would've loved to include more of the gate, but the glass on either side of the handles wasn't nearly as interesting as the colors and texture of the handles and the lock.

    Hmm, I didn't realize it was a little underexposed though, hmmm. damn monitor........misleading me. lol

    This is a lock on a mausoleum, btw.

    thanks for the comments, and I'll try and incorporate them into future work. :)

    I like decay and rust and rot and ... <shudder> I'm so excited! :) :lol:

    The crop might be a bit tight, agreed. The shot is underexposed also, agreed.

    Other than that, looks like an interesting subject.

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ROT!

    How many stops would you two say the shot is underexposed? Perhaps I took it a bit far trying to add to the contrast?

    I'm going to go back sometime in the next few days and examine this subject again, implimenting all of your suggestions.

    ^^^ you know, I'm not good at that "how many stops" thing. I'd guess maybe 2?

    When you go back try shooting raw so you have some PP flexibility later. Also try metering on several areas on the object and average it out.

    Man, 2 stops is a lot. I'll have to look at the embedded data to see where I was on that one. I think this monitor is seriously screwing with me (perhaps I need to upgrade :lol:).

    I can't shoot in RAW because my little SX100 IS doesn't support it. At least, until I get CHKD, mwhahahaha.

    I agree about the chains being in focus more than the lock, definitely will rectify that one when I go out and hit this again.

    I'm going to have to disagree with Manheim on this; as that pictures appears on my [admitedly crappy, uncalibrated work] monitor, I would say the under-exposure is more in the region of 1/3 - 1/2 stop.

    i like it, it gives me a meaning like when you get married and move in a new house - the door.
    your heart - the chain will be lock to your husband/wife - padlock, lol
